    Hard One One man walks out,

    about his realm. He surveys what he knows is there. His orchards stretched in soldier lines. Fat with apple, quince, and pear. His barns stand straight, new-painted red. The silo bulge'n - life within. Hay rows tedder'd,set for bale'n. Bessie clangs her bell of tin. Gold...

    I went to a party. Not knowing it would change

    my life. I was too trusting. Unable to stop it! Crying praying! Someone rescue me!!! No one came. I was broken. Real friends, family save me from myself. The dark thoughts, blame, shame melt away only to visit me again. Reminding myself I'm alive, God loves me, my friends...

    fate, my death Coz an act of love and kindness always bring pain without depth

    The leaves are around; the green foliage hits

    my mates place. His palace; where I'm treated like a royal dignitary. I treat him with the highest of respect... He manipulates a party scene, and that's one of the many reasons why he is my friend.

    A flower is pretty but it fades A stone is cold

    but it remains Trees bring comfort but steal the scene Birds sing lovely but then they leave If you want pleasure until the end You need to nurture the whole garden I was young a long time ago I stay steady in my love for you Despite my size I still may fall I speak the truth...

    I flash back and see A memory... Of a girl crying in a corner, wishing they didn't scorn her. Breaking down inside, looking for a place to hide. Of a girl always looking down, averting shameful eyes from their frown. She's all alone, without a home...? Of a girl filled with...

    I lose track of reality Feelings are a memory

    Lovely lines of blurry blood.

    As the candles dance

    and sing, Reflective of the stars they bring. Laying on a softened sheet, Mindful of our sandy feet. Enjoying dinner in the night, With the dancing candle light. As the moon does start to crest, And even though we needed rest. Time stands still between us now, Darkened weather...

    My Heart Was Ripped Away From Me

    I wrote this when I was 17. I wasn't in the best of states. I had been cutting a week. But soon after I wrote this I got over my life and pulled my-self back together. The wind combs my hair, the silk of the breeze so smooth. The sparkles in the night sky, they shine so bright...

    The sun scolds my eyes

    as I gaze up at the cotton like clouds. As I lay in the green grass, I begin to wonder. What is happiness? Is it contentment? Is it a balance? Am I happy? I'm not so sure if I am. But even if I were, would I be able to tell? Are happy people even aware that they're happy...
